For nearly 200 years, Missouri has served as a hub for artistic innovation. From quilt making to oil painting, and from ragtime to blacksmithing, Missouri has been the birthplace of hundreds of folk artists, musicians, authors, dancers, actors, and other creators and performers.
Join us at the First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site on Missouri Day, Wednesday, Oct. 16, to celebrate Missouri's unique and longstanding love of the arts. During this family-friendly event, visitors will be able to engage with modern artists and learn about the history of the arts in our state. There will be crafts, music, dance, games, storytelling and more. School groups are welcome.
